Here at the hive we are planting our very first organic veggie garden. I emphasize "very first" as I am learning as I go and have no real idea of what I am doing! I spent the winter months researching garden "how tos", talking to those "in the know" (i.e. my parents and grandparents), and finally committing to a plan I felt was doable for a beginner.
After a brief phone tutorial from my dad and a few YouTube videos, I was up and running!
|All American Veggie Garden|
|Easy Children's Garden|
-walked off an 8 x 8 area of an “all day sun” section of our yard
-tilled the area to break up the ground
- raked and shoveled grass and rocks from the area (I used the displaced soil and grass to fill holes in our yard)
-added peat moss and manure
-raked some more to remove remaining grass and rocks
-cleaned up surrounding perimeter
She found a nice collections of worms by the time we were done. (Poor worms!)
Now the garden area will sit for a week. I don’t have a recommendation for the peat moss and manure, I told my husband to get whatever they had organic. Anyway, this is just what he got, I’m not sure what brands etc. are best at this point.
Ready for veggies!!Stay tuned! Next weekend is Easter and we will be traveling for the weekend but we plan to pick back up on our garden plans once we return! (more info to come as to what we are planting etc.)
Please let me know if you have any specific questions or have any suggestions for me!
